Field Marketing Representative

Date: Aug 12, 2019

Location: Philadelphia, PA, US

Company: James Hardie

Position Summary

 

James Hardie is looking for college graduates and entry-level candidates to add to our growing Field Brand Ambassador team! We not only want people who are upbeat and excited about interacting with potential customers, but also people who have a desire to lead and gain supervisory experience down the road. Our unique marketing model involves getting out of the office and into the field to promote our brand, generate leads, schedule appointments, and support the contractors that sell our premiere products.

 

Our Brand Ambassadors spend about 75% of their time in the field generating leads in more upscale neighborhoods, where the homes are of an age where they may need to be sided or re-sided in the near future. In addition to canvassing these neighborhoods, our Brand Ambassadors will do local community events and retail promotions (25%), everything from setting up at fairs, to doing weekend promotions in retail Big Box stores, to wine festivals, street fairs, and assisting at home shows or other similar events.

 

At James Hardie, you will find a fast-paced, high energy work environment. We seek to maintain an entrepreneurial atmosphere where people are empowered to “run with” their part of the business to make it successful. As one of the fastest growing companies in the building materials sector, you will have the opportunity for development and career advancement into other departments of the business, such as Inside Sales, Outside Sales, Marketing, Management (within Ambassador Program), Organizational Development or Field Auditing/Pricing.
